Why Women's Health PT?
While in school, my mom was diagnosed with pelvic pain after being passed from doctor to doctor without any tests to explain her symptoms. Turns out, it was scar tissue from her cesarean deliveries. How many women go to physical therapy after childbirth? LESS THAN 5%!
It was that moment in time when I found myself compassionately interested in Pelvic Health within Physical Therapy. After going through many Continuing Education Courses, I realized I too had experienced some pelvic pain and discomfort and realized a giant gap in treatment for women with pelvic floor dysfunctions. I have continued my research and training in Pelvic Health, obstetrics, and breast cancer across the country over the past few years.Currently, I am privileged to make changes for those in need in order to decrease pain, dysfunction and even fear!
It is important to understand what is going on but more importantly, WHY did it happen in the first place. I believe in receiving noticeable results within 3-5 visits while identifying self autonomy for you to help regain control over your own life! I believe functional treatments that you can use in your every day life rather than lying on your back making me do the work! It's your body. You need to understand whats going on and TOGETHER we can fix it!
About Dr. Allison DeCory
Hi, I'm Dr. Allison! I have been practicing outpatient orthopedics since moving to Charleston in 2016. I am originally from Rochester, NY where I earned my BS and DPT at Nazareth College of Rochester. I became interested in PT as a career after suffering an ankle injury playing volleyball in high school. I loved the conservative approach to my injury recovery and the encouragement I received from my PT. I continued with Outpatient Orthopedics when I moved to Charleston and began my journey with Pelvic Floor training. After furthering my knowledge and education, pelvic health had become a new passion. It brings a whole new light to physical therapy!
Why Women's Health PT?
After dealing with pelvic floor dysfunction of my own, I realized how important education is for women, especially in the prenatal and postpartum community. The reason why I got into PT was so people can do what they want and not be restricted with movement. Now fast forward to pelvic floor PT… I realized just how much women need this kind of PT! Women should be able to run and jump or laugh and sneeze without peeing on themselves! I feel people should be able to do what they want with their kids without pain or taking a bunch of medications! I have a very strong passion for pelvic floor PT and look forward to continuing to serve and empower the women of the Lowcountry.
I use a whole-body treatment approach with emphasis on function to help patients achieve their goals and restore their independence. I love helping women better understand their bodies and return to activities they never thought they would be able to do again. I emphasis function. If you like running, let's look at running. If you are having issues lifting your baby, let's lift your baby! I like looking at the whole body to help with day-to-day activities from a wholistic approach!
